a real cliffhanger. members of the house are now leaving washington, now that a republican plan offered by house speaker john boehner, called plan b, was put aside. it simply did not have enough support to pass. boehner's plan would have raised taxes on those earning more than $1 million a year. after pulling the bill, boehner said it's now up to president obama and the senate to find a way to avoid the cliff. so there's no way to get a plan through the house based on republican support. that is the political lesson from this. but the day before, they said this is going to pass and then yanked it because the support in that chamber was not there. so i don't know quite where it goes from here. no one does. and now it's time for christmas break. so they get back and have less than a week to get something done before january. >> and the president isn't going to hawaii now, right? >> the last i heard, it was still up in the air. you can't imagine he would have a vacation now. or any of them shouldn't have a vacation now. but we don't know. so cliff hanger is the right word for sure. >>> now
